Biography of Deric Lostutter

Deric Lostutter, also known by his pseudonym KYAnonymous, is an American programmer and former member of the hacking organization 'Anonymous'. He gained notoriety after assisting law enforcement in providing evidence of the guilt of several young men accused of raping a 16-year-old girl, in a scandal that rocked the small town of Steubenville, Ohio.

Born in America in 1987, Deric Lostutter currently resides in Kentucky with his girlfriend and brother. As a programmer, he became involved in the investigation of the Steubenville rape case. He discovered that the school administration and the town were attempting to shift blame onto the victim, while denying any involvement of the students. The girl had been drugged at a party and subsequently subjected to abuse by members of the school's football team. Photos of the incident started circulating on social media, eventually reaching the attention of the public and leading to the involvement of 'Anonymous'.

'Anonymous' became the girl's main supporters, assisting the police in obtaining the necessary evidence to prove the guilt of the perpetrators. However, to everyone's surprise, the police later targeted the organization, resulting in Deric Lostutter's arrest several years after the initial trial. Lostutter confessed to being one of the coordinators involved in the Steubenville rape case. Despite being hailed as a hero by many Americans, he now faces charges that, if found guilty, could lead to a longer prison sentence than those served by the actual rapists.

Lostutter believes that his actions were justified and necessary, as 'Anonymous' played a crucial role in helping the police gather evidence. Many major American corporations share this viewpoint, advocating for the protection of those who risk their lives to help others. However, the police view the situation differently, given 'Anonymous'' previous attacks on governmental portals. Some hackers speculate that Lostutter intentionally took the blame to protect other members of the organization, who they believe were only seeking justice.

In the summer of 2013, over 200,000 Americans signed a petition in support of Deric Lostutter, leading to a temporary suspension of the investigation. Currently, his future remains uncertain. Lostutter continues to receive hundreds of letters expressing gratitude, assuring users that 'Anonymous' will always stand guard against injustice, even when the police seem powerless.
